You can read Knite for free at

This 27x18 inch poster is for sale at :star: [link] :star: :D and you can save on shipping if you buy it with the first poster, "Bringer of Stars" online right now at :star: [link] :star: :) Please purchase one to support the comic. I spend a lot of time drawing the chapters for everyone to read for free online while being a full time university student. I really need any support I can get to help pay for tuition, and to continue making the comics free online. Thank you! :hug:

Also 10% of all profit will be donated to Word Wild Life Fund and other environmental organizations :D


About the art:

I wanted to show that China is a changing country in this drawing. Every time I visit my homeland, I notice so many changes that I can barely recognize the place. Industrialization is occurring so quickly that you can find brand new skyscrapers right next to little shacks and slums.

The Chinese people are looking forward to enjoying the simple things in life like owning a computer or car, and living in a house that doesn't have leaky roofs. Yet there is a unique culture that will be lost along with the impoverished past.

With the building of new apartments, traditional wood and brick houses will be torn down. The word "拆" in red on the the white wall in the right side of the picture means "demolish". It marks the grounds that will be replaced with skyscrapers. Many people are forced to move out, and the displaced population are usually too poor to afford the newly built apartments. Also all the continuous constructions create a lot of dust and air pollution. There is always a grey haze in the cities.

This is the inevitable future that the Chinese people must face since humans must move forward, and Sen notices the disparity of it all. They are only students right now, but they will grow up to be leaders. Between the conflicts of the past, present, and future, the Knites will try to change China for a better tomorrow.
